Vintage Lighthouse Snow Globe Or Dome Beacon Light:
Vintage lighthouse snow globe for sale.
Features: a red and white light house with black point and red and black roofed "keeper's cabin" where the lighthouse keeper actually stays.
Lighthouses were painted bright colors in order to be seen by day, and lighted to be seen by night. A lighthouse's purpose was to warn ships away from reef or shore, and are a symbol of safety and hospitality, constancy in a changing world.
This lighthouse snowglobe was probably produced purely as a souvenir for a coastal town, but currently lighthouses represent hospitals and hospice, and other similar caring entities.
Glass: older thicker glass, with side and circumferential seams.
Base: dark brown glazed ceramic.
Height: about 4 inches.
Age: 50-60 years.
Condition: good restored condition.
Imperfections: small chip in top of base as shown.
Note: I restore these snow globes as a hobby because I think that they are beautiful, and wish to preserve them. I generally only restore the truly miserable ones, and try to preserve the snow and all of the original parts as much as possible. Last picture is a "before" picture.
Please also note: I describe each item to the best of my ability. I try to be accurate with words and pictures. Please email with any questions or corrections.
I try to be green in shipping, and use recycled bubble wrap/paper/packaging. I also try to get items out promptly, but sometimes get held up with work, etc. I will try to let you know if there are going to be any significant delays.
My mailing estimate is just that. If the actual cost is less, the difference will be refunded.
